Joseph Nangantani hired as Auditor General

By Rebecca Chimjeka:

President Peter Mutharika has appointed Joseph Nangantani as Auditor General (AG), Chief Secretary to the Government, Lloyd Muhara, has confirmed.

“I would like to inform your office that his Excellency Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika, in exercise of powers under Section 184 (3) of the Constitution, has appointed Joseph Nangantani to the post of Auditor General. The appointment is subject to confirmation by the National Assembly,” Muhara writes.

Nangantani, who beat two other candidates during interviews, Thursday said he was in the dark about his appointment, adding: “but I can confirm that I had applied for the job.”

The government Leader of the House, Kondwani Nankhumwa, told Parliament in Lilongwe that the House is expected to debate the confirmation of the AG-designate.

The office of the AG fell vacant after the Office of President and Cabinet decided against renewing Stephenson Kamphasa’s contract.

Nangantani is working as an audit, tax and advisory partner for AMG Global.
